Singularly Cheerful

Singularly Cheerful


My daughter wanted to design a set of rolags, and chose simple, bright and bold colours with just a hint of purple sparkle. They became one of my favourite ever skeins.

There’s something about those colours,

Those bold, bright, clear colours.

Primaries and secondaries.

Nothing else. Nothing in between.

No subtle hues, no delicate shades.

Just there. Bold. Shouting!

Shouting at you: “I’m here! Look at me!”

It seems to me the colours of childhood, the colours of play.

The bold inks of the nursery paint box, the pile of crayons, the picture books.

But above all else, what this happy palette brings to mind is an all-time favourite:

The upturned lego box!
